proposition c was passed which requires us also to review and provide input for the city services auditor and also the whistle blower program. we have nine appointed members, and they're appointed -- over here on the left hand side are the names of the members. we have the vice chair john [inaudible] in the audience. some of us are appointed by board of supervisors, one by the mayor, and one by the civil grand jury and two by the controller and in my case i will be leaving the citizen's general obligation bond oversight committee shortly and i would urge another small business person if possible. my particular role is being active in a business organization. i think it would be great to have another small business person that comes into this role. so some of the things that we did this year we changed the frequency of our meetings from four times a year to six times a year, and we did that because we felt we didn't have enough time to address the bonds. i believe it's up over $2 billion in bonds which is a lot of money and a lot of responsibility and we thought more frequent meeting
in front of us. can we take a role? >> (calling roll for items). there 11 i's. and it's passed. why don't we go to our next item >> i want to thank imply co-sponsor. >> we have an brif item it is a resolution commending february 27th and to declare in russian day. >> we have a motion could we have a second to that? >> is there any public comment on this item? okay seeing none, it is closed >> this is adapted. >> yes. today's meeting will be adjourned for the late anthony on behalf of the supervisor kim mr. diane sullivan and ms. charley. >> thank you, madam clerk is there anything else? >> no other agenda. >> thank you. this meeting is . >> good morning. welcome to the government audit and oversight committee. i am carmen chu, chair of the committee. i am joined by our cochair malia cohen and david campos. our clerk today is here and we have sfgtv here. madam clerk do you have any announcements today? >> please silent all electronic devices and cell phones and all copies part of the file somebody submitted to the clerk. each member of the public will be allowed the same
received the news fund, trustee, [speaker not understood], told us that laguna honda hospital is the recipient of ms. dolores knight's $500,000 donation and that the money is deposited to -- actually in january just last month, we had received a complete disbursement of the $500,000. the money is deposited into the patient gift fund. so, let me talk a little bit about our gift fund. the gift feud at laguna honda hospital provides activities and experiences that enrich the lives of laguna honda hospital residents that includes the expenditures for musical entertainment, cultural celebration, special holiday meals, outing to the parks, ball games, [speaker not understood] and other events. so, for the end of the last fiscal year, the sum balance of this gift fund was at $1.9 million, including both in cash and in donated stock at the market value. at the hospital we have committees called the gift fund management committee. it's the oversight of the gift fund. so, this committee will meet and then make a proposal to the san francisco health commission, the annual budget based on
fund. and then the use of the general re serve of 32.2 million. we are assuming you will need to use all of that reserve in order to balance the budget. and then the deposits to reserves, because of our increases to revenue, amount to 11 million. so, that brings us to a projected fund balance estimate of 174 million. as i mentioned before, 103 million of that was already committed to the year two. and the replenishment of the general re serve that we will be using this year needs to be incorporated in next year's budget, leaving us with a projected surplus of $38 million. so, the next slide provides you with a summary of our major tax revenue in the city and it shows you where the bulk of that surplus 72 million come from. and that is property transfer taxes, about $21 million over the budget as we are taking a look at the cash we've received thus far and estimating how much additional property tax revenue we will get for the reminder of the year. our second-largest is -- yes. >> if we can go back to the previous slide, the projected surplus, 38.3 million, how does that relate to the
for taking time out it talk to us about what you do and the love with which you do it. we appreciate your time here on quick bites. i hope you've enjoyed our delicious tale of defendant 93 and dessert. as for me, my search is over. those reviews did not lie. in fact, i'm thinking of one of my very own. some things you just have it experience for yourself. to learn more about anthony's cookies, visit him on the web at if you want to watch some of our other episodes at sfquickbites/ see . >> good morning. welcome to the government audit and oversight committee. i am carmen chu, chair of the committee. i am joined by our cochair malia cohen and david campos. our clerk today is here and we have sfgtv here. madam clerk do you have any announcements today? >> please silent all electronic devices and cell phones and all copies part of the file somebody submitted to the clerk. each member of the public will be allowed the same amount of time to speak and will appear on the agenda unless otherwise stated. >> thank you very much. will you call item num
balance of $38.3 million. we started the year with a balance of 220 million. 104 million of that was used to balance this year's budget. as you recall in a two-year budget, we were appropriating for two fiscal years. this year and next year. so, 104 million was appropriated in year one. and then if you see under column d another 103 million was appropriated for year two. so, the mayor's office policy which was adopted by the board, [speaker not understood] take that starting balance and allocate it for each of the two fiscal years. >> does that include where we allocated -- when we send the budget stabilization reserve, [speaker not understood] fund balance? >> that's right. so, current year -- >> [speaker not understood]. >> right. so, we have $116 million available. much of that is going to be counted for next fiscal year. $72 million of current revenue. and in the next slide we'll show you exactly what sources that 72 million comes from. baseline contributions, that is, we have to pay $9.5 million to get to our base lines. department of operations, if you take all of the revenue, gains
benefit cost growth is a significant issue for us as well as our unfunded retiree health care liability which, as you'll recall, is $4.4 billion. our labor contracts, as i mentioned, will be open the second year of the budget. this budget -- the projection before you assumes no wage increase in the second year of the budget, but we will be negotiating with the majority of our labor unions not police and fire in the second year. we also, as you all have heard and i think this will continue to be an issue that comes up at this committee and in other places, the effects of federal health care reform are really uncertain. the way that the department receives revenue is changing dramatically. the people who will be covered, it's a whole new expanded pool of people. they have choices about where to -- where to consume health care. do he they want to be a dph client, do they want to go somewhere else. there is a lot of uncertainty around that. the governor has made proposals about potentially shifting those responsibilities entirely to the counties which would have significant and --
that context with the expenditure growth, within that can you tell us a little bit more about what, what those line items are underneath that that contribute greatly to those numbers? >> sure. i think i'll answer that in the next two slides. and if i don't get it, then we can talk a little bit more about it. >> got it. >> so, the next slide just provides a high level of our revenue picture. so, in our -- in the assumptions that i've made in our budget deficit projection, we're assuming we will want to have a state reserve so that costs us money those years. we assume that some of the one-time sources that we may have used to balance the budget last year are not available and then we have revenue growth in the general fund. and i have assumed that there will be about $50 million of revenue growth and -- in the first year and 128 million in the second year. on the expenditure side, what you can see is that our costs are growing largely because of personnel related costs. so, this is slide 9. the first line, so, $8.8 million of costs greater than what we -- what you adopted in the budget last yea

are use drugs and alcohol are inherently incapable of being responsible people and i want to make sure you are dispelling that in some ways when you put together these programs and not all people that drink do it to excess and they can still manage lives quite well. i know that there's an organization in the city called the drug users union which is trying to communicate and educate the public that not people that use drugs are bad and drugs are not all bad and drinking alcohol and there is a difference in the statements, so if that could somewhat -- >> sure. i would love to go on the record from that. first of all from a important -- personal experience i grew up in new york and my grandmother was billy holiday and was on trial for an arrest and at that time you couldn't perform in a night club without this and she couldn't work and she grew up a block from me and she was -- actually 93rd street. i'm sorry. i was a baby. and she came to our house everyday and my dad coauthored "lady sings the blues" and i say that because my god mother was addicted to heroin. i was around talented
that are boarded up that are not in use and have been boarded up for years. i have been in san francisco for about 16 years, and i myself have been homeless, and have lived in a shelter, and the experience there was not a good one, and i have lived in sro's. luckily now i have housing but it's subsidized housing, and that's a step up, but it's still not my own and i couldn't afford it because i am on disability and i know there are a lot of people like me. i am also a senior with a disability, so it's very challenging to try to get move up somewhere that's decent and be on your own and i know people on the streets would like a place of their own and i know it's a big challenge but if we could open up some of the empty buildings that have been empty for years and years, and put housing in there, or open a shelter where we can have beds for these people and might have a semi-temporary housing so they can move up in the world. if we can help them more that would be great but i don't know how we can do that, and maybe you know more than i do, and maybe you can help us figure this out because i know
